“How could I not include one of these beautiful creatures in the exhibition? Those forlorn searching eyes totally absorbed my creative thoughts.”
The owl is often revered and feared, but is universally respected for its wisdom. The owl is regarded as a spiritual bird to so many cultures around the world from Africa to Asia, and in Europe there are historical references dating back to the Roman Empire and Ancient Greece. The owl was often perceived to be the one who takes the spirit away when death comes. To the Inuit living in the Arctic, the Snowy Owl had shamanic references as the guardian protector spirit. To the Māori, the Morepork (Ruru) was an ancestral guardian (kaitiaki) that warned of death and had the power to protect, inform and advise.
